Tire Repair

Repairing a damaged tire is certainly less expensive and less hassle than buying a brand new one. But repairing a tire isn’t always an option. If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if it meets the following criteria:

  1. The tire has not been driven on when flat
  2. The damage is only on the tread section of your tire (sidewall damage ruins a tire immediately) and/or
  3. The puncture is less than 6mm (¼")

If your tire is flat, we can help teach you how to change a tire.

PATCH, YES. PLUG, NO.

If you decide to go the repair route, make sure you do it right. The proper way to have a tire repaired is to patch the tire from the inside and fill the puncture hole. Do not have your tire plugged. Plug repairs don’t involve taking the tire off the wheel for a proper inspection. A plug is simply inserted into the punctured area, making it unreliable. Insist on a full inspection and have your dealer patch and fill the repair on the inside of the tire.

If you need to find the right new tire for your vehicle, use the Find a Tire tool in the top menu.
